Ahhhhh...spring! Put's me in a happy mood...and gets me ready to give a little bit of sunshine out too. I offer to you, my esteemed few readers, a chance to win a bit o' sunshine. It's easy to do, too! The last time I offered a contest you had to tediously write out a WHOLE summer recipe. Not this time. This time you must only post a comment saying where you are from. Now-who can't do THAT?
You see... I despise those little tickers that tell you how many people have stopped by (for my own blog, that is). I see that as only one more thing to become fixated on. I don't want the pressure on me. I don't want a 'GET MORE READERS' complex. Gotta keep it REAL, you know?
I would very much like to know where my blog friends are from...especially if there are any international pals floating about. I know my friends the Drifthout's, from England, stop by from time to time, a few Canadians drop by to visit and I even recall a certain Australian appearance. So-where ARE you from? You needn't put a city, if that causes a worryline on your brow. Only the state or country. And it is that simple. I very much look forward to all this! Wa HOO!
"Now", you say, "let's get to the good stuff. What's in it for me?"
Ah yes. Well, the prize is an all expense paid visit to Happy Valley for a visit.
No, up for grabs is a goody basket (yes, that means more than ONE thing!!!) that will include...a wonderully scented candle, a jar of blueberry jam with coordinating spreader, a delicious box of my favorite tea (can you guess which one it is?) and finally and handmade (by me) breadcloth for wrapping up your freshly baked breads and rolls (or any bread you might have on hand.) Of course, that has yet to be made...so there is no picture. But I can tell you it will be made out of a lovely spring-ish paisley print...and with lots of love.
So there you have it! I will start working on it as soon as I finish this post. In the next day or two, I will post a picture to hopefully, sweeten the pot. Here are the rules.
You must comment on this post BY noon on April 1st to be included in the drawing. Oh-and one more thing. All my friends and family that I already KNOW where you live...if you want to be included in the drawing, you must comment as well. You are not getting out of it THAT easy! The name will be drawn at random and the winner announced by evening on April Fools Day.
No foolin, no lyin!
